    Hey all,
    I just received my new Dell 700 M (2.0 GHZ, 1G Ram, etc).
    I tried to use the microphone but it didn't work.
    But if you plug-in a microphone to the jack then you can talk . Does this model have a microphone built-in so I do not have to plug-in an external mic?!
    Or is it a software problem?

    I need your help.

    thanks

    First of all welcome to OSNN.

    Secondly, have you unmuted the Mic in the volume control? Some do have built-in microphones. Im not sure you could find out thru windows, I think you would need to look at the laptop. The usual place it near the keyboard.

    If it does have a built in Mic you can still use an external as the built in wont give you the best quality.

    The 700m doesn't have a built-in microphone. :)
